Just $15 In “Recommended” AliExpress Products: Real vs Advertised

AliExpress Real vs Advertised

So I saw this in various youtube videos so decided to give myself a $10-ish USD budget and see what the recommended products on AliExpress had to offer.  It knows me pretty well for cheap nail stamping plates so a few days before I went through and clicked on various things I would buy to make it not all about the stamping.

7th Heaven Nail and Cuticle Finger Masques Review

I use a lot more acetone than I should and my cuticles often suffer for it.  I am pretty good about using cuticle oil and giving them a little TLC but sometimes they just need a little more help.  So when I saw that 7th Heaven had expanded their range to include some new spa products including Strengthen Nail & Cuticle Finger Masks I was excited.  I have tried similar ones before and they are great to use after removing gel[Read more]
